The word Ausländer is German for ‘foreigner’ or ‘outsider’, and encapsulates this column’s focus: Second Language Acquisition (SLA). Here, we share our stories on language learning—some experiential, others informed by the formal study of language acquisition—and share our SLA tips and tricks, learning strategies, teaching methods and pedagogical philosophies. So, whether you’re looking to learn how to learn a language, or simply looking to supercharge your already-successful process, you’ve come to the right place.
